Biography

Michal Linial is a Professor of Bioinformatics, Molecular and Computational Biology at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI). From 2012/13 she is the director of the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies (IIAS). ML is a founder and chair of the for Computational Biology educational program in HUJI. She serves in the Board of Directors and as a Vice-President of the International Society of Computational Biology and was selected as a fellow of the society (2016). ML contributed to the development of bioinformatics databases and websites that are open to the biomedical and life science communities on protein annotations and the link between sequence, structure and function. Her current research interests cover host-pathogen co-evolution, cancer genomics, protein family evolution, microRNA mode of action in extreme cellular conditions and researching the molecular basis of aging and metabolic diseases. She applies large-scale technologies including next generation sequencing and mass spectrometry for revealing the regulation levels cell in health and disease.
